I think is our first year ever without any first-timers. Awesome.
I tried out couchmanagers just to be sure we wouldn't have any problems. I have not done an exhaustive search for rookies who may or may not be in the their db vs in Yahoo!'s db. Only possible hurdle I see is position eligibility. Yahoo uses 10 games, couchmanagers seems set at 20. I'll try build a little additional flexibility into our rosters to not screw us up.
So I've not heard anyone object to the 16th so we'll go with that. I'll kick it off mid-day so we might get some picks in, but that should give plenty of time for everyone to check in later in the day.
